Absolute silence leads to sadness. It is the image of death.
No power is strong enough to be lasting if it labors under the weight of fear.
Tell your friend that in his death, a part of you dies and goes with him. Wherever he goes, you also go. He will not be alone.
An insincere and evil friend is more to be feared than a wild beast; a wild beast may wound your body, but an evil friend will wound your mind.
A coward dies a thousand deaths... a soldier dies but once.
If you don't know how to live, why wonder about death?
A man who fears suffering is already suffering from what he fears.
If you are afraid of being lonely, don't try to be right.
When desire dies, fear is born.
It's stasis that kills you off in the end, not ambition.
I do not see why man should not be just as cruel as nature
Each night, when I go to sleep, I die. And the next morning, when I wake up, I am reborn.
A man who is not afraid is not aggressive, a man who has no sense of fear of any kind is really a free, a peaceful man.
It is not death that a man should fear, but he should fear never beginning to live.
Its better to burn out than fade away.
The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be.
The fear of death follows from the fear of life. A man who lives fully is prepared to die at any time.
I'm the one that has to die when it's time for me to die, so let me live my life, the way I want to.
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
In the blackest of your moments, wait with no fear.
He who controls the past controls the future. He who controls the present controls the past.
